by Todd "GWOtaku" DuBoison August 4, 2017
Following a grand battle that left neither side undamaged, season 3 of Voltron Legendary Defender has the feel of starting a new book in an ongoing saga. The “Paladins” of Voltron are no longer green and ready to take the fight to the Galra Empire, which is itself left uncertain by Emperor Zarkon incapacitation from […]

Captain Underpants: The First Epic Movie

Review: “Captain Underpants: The First Epic Movie” is Supremely Silly Slapstick

by Ed Liuon June 2, 2017
DreamWorks Animation’s Captain Underpants: The First Epic Movie is almost perfectly critic-proof for a number of reasons, the biggest being that you can’t say that this movie is stupendously juvenile, extraordinarily silly, and resolutely lowbrow in its sense of humor without sounding like you’re criticizing it for those things. I genuinely mean all of those […]

Review: “The Boss Baby” Stands on Its Own Two Feet

by Christopher Glennonon March 31, 2017
Babies are loud, irrational, and demanding of time. A stereotypical boss is loud, irrational, and demanding of time. A baby runs a household just like a boss runs a company. You know what would be funny? If a baby actually dressed and acted like a boss but was still a baby. That’s the thought process […]

Review: Grander Adventure Awaits in “Voltron Legendary Defender” Season 2

by Todd "GWOtaku" DuBoison January 19, 2017
The first thing to understand about season 2 of Voltron Legendary Defender is that it’s really a second season in name only. Rather than something akin to a new chapter or a book in what has been a very plot-driven show, it’s a straightforward continuation that picks up exactly where the first left off. That’s […]

DreamWorks Trolls

Review: “Trolls” – Licensed Property Film with a Large Side Order of Bizarre

That also includes being known in pop culture as cute collectible dolls with wild hair. Cute […]
